Recently I came across this peer-reviewed online journal’s March issue ‘On the City‘ and kind of liked especially its web-related multi-media access. Here is a description of the journal in its own words:
Finders Keepers is one example of a reviewed project, which can be accessed via film, flash or pdf text.

A week later, they would reconvene at a secret location, bringing with them their finished artworks, which would then be put on display. Members of the public were then invited to “come join the crowd for broken beats and dustbin booze,” forming a kind of opening party in the temporarily occupied space. The event culminated with the blowing of a whistle, at which point the crowds were free to grab an item of work they liked and take it home with them, ripping down the whole scene in a few short minutes and disappearing into the night.
